Found this belt $0.50 I don't like the belt at ALL but I did like the little circle at the end, thought it looked fun and would function well with this project because it would loop through.
I found this tie there was a very large selection, but this one just kept catching my eye. I really liked the color scheme!
I detached the little circle from the end of the belt, this will show you what kind of closure it really is.
Running the thin end of the tie through one side of the circle, pull it all the way through until you have the length that you want. I just kept holding it up around my waist until I got the length that I needed. Pin the tie next to the circle then again at the end of where the two sides meet. The rest of the (skinny part) of the tie is hanging off the table, out of view.
These little red arrows show where I pinned, then later stitched the tie, to itself allowing for a decent hold.
Here is what it would look like if you fastened it on the side of you hip VS the front of your waist!
Well I hope that was easy to understand, and I am sorry if it isn't but tonight is one of those nights where I get to fight sleep Yay...I am thinking that if my sewing machine and I ever get on good terms that I may stitch this all the way down, or with a neat threading design but for now easy and fast were the way to go!
